Community First Oxfordshire Conference – 15th September 2023

Community-led Stewardship: Shaping Resilient, Sustainable Places CONFERENCE

Friday 15 September 2023 @ Chesterton Community Hall, Oxfordshire

10:00 – 14:00 (followed by lunch)

Community First Oxfordshire is delighted to give you advance notice of this upcoming conference.

One constant in communities is change, and every community is unique. Yet common challenges and opportunities face and shape all our places, population change, housing development, health and wellbeing, the climate and ecological crisis…

With speakers from CFO, Wild Oxfordshire, London Development Trust and Eynsham Parish Council, the conference will consider some of the ‘big ticket’ challenges facing us: making local planning and development work best for the community and enabling projects and initiatives to meet social and community needs. It will also showcase ways in which our communities are rising to these placemaking challenges.

The conference will also launch a new CFO service: Community Stewardship Support.

 Stewardship means managing assets across the long term, such as community facilities, housing, green and open spaces, and parks and play areas. CFO believes community-led stewardship has the potential to revitalize communities, putting local residents and their needs front and centre in asset management and ownership, and driving community development. Because another constant in our communities is the extraordinary range of skills, commitment, and determination of people working on ways and means to create places which thrive long into the future and help us live healthy and fulfilling lives.
